Skills workouts take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Strength and conditioning workouts generally take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, lasting an hour to an hour. In addition Coach King works with the student-athletes on other issues related to developing and maintaining peak physical condition, such as nutrition. Student-athletes are allowed to participate in voluntary activities such as pickup games, but any such activity must be voluntary and can't be observed or monitored by the coaches.
All of the players on the 2014-2015 team are on campus except for incoming freshman Paris Kea, who was selected to the USA Basketball U18 team in May. Obligations with Team USA conflict with summer school, so she'll be coming to campus at the beginning of the fall semester. Here are some snapshots of the other players as they go through a typical summer time strength and conditioning workout.
